Introduced in House (03/25/1993)

Deplores human rights violations committed by the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA)-controlled government forces and by the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA).

Condemns UNITA's refusal to negotiate, its attempts to expand the war, and its apparent effort to disregard the democratic process and instead win a military victory in Angola.

Urges both parties to the conflict to negotiate an immediate ceasefire and set a timetable for full implementation of the Bicesse Peace Accords.

Calls upon the President to: (1) accord diplomatic recognition to the Government of Angola; (2) appoint a Special Envoy to Angola; (3) urge the United Nations Secretary General to take steps to facilitate a ceasefire and build an acceptable climate for a presidential run-off in Angola; (4) take steps in the international community to pressure any nation or party to the conflict determined to be obstructing peace in Angola; and (5) consider dispatching a team to Angola to assess the humanitarian crisis and make recommendations for a U.S. response.
